HP LaserJet 4

It wnt't turn on. No lights. Nothing. But sometimes after a few minutes of joggling and turning the switch on and off it turns on. I dont knwo if my fiddling has any effect or if it just eventually turns on on its own. The power cord is fine.The power connector seems firm.

Thanks for any help. I dont knwo where to take it if repair is necessary. I'm in Portland, Oregon

1-the switch is bad, or not engaging properly
2-the power board is bad/ bad transformer
3-bad socket

get a portable lamp plug in socket and wiggle totest connection, if it stays on the socket is good otherwise call electrician.
leave printer on for a few minutes does it come on by itself witout you getting jiggy with it? bad board

if not the switch is most likely the problem

HP LaserJet 4L quit working It's connected to my PC and it's on. All 4 lights are on; 2 green and 2 orange. When I try to print, the paper goes through but nothing is printed on the paper.


Empty cartridge maybe?
Otherwise it's simple: selt-test page(by printer button) printed ok - it's outer problem. Self-page is blank - it's inner problem. And so on... use Golden Section method

Hp laserjet 3055 has error message on copying "50 fuser error, turn off then on". Restarting brings on the same message when copying.


The all-in-one has experienced an internal hardware error.

1. Turn off the power by using the power switch, and then wait at least 30 seconds.
2. If a surge protector is being used, remove it. Plug the all-in-one directly into the wall socket.
3. Check the cabling connections to the heating element.
4. Turn on the power and wait for the all-inone to initialize.
5. If, the error persists, replace the fuser.
NOTE The device power mustremain off for at least 20 minutes forthe fuser to cool down and correctly reset.
Turn off the power switch, wait at least 20 minutes, and then use the power switch to turn on the all-in-one and wait for it to initialize.

My HP Laserjet 4 will power up and print beautifully for about 5 minutes, then it shuts down - all lights go out, no fans working - nothing - dead! I have to turn the power switch off and wait several...


Have you powered-off the printer, unplugged the AC power, and used a can of compressed-air to give the printer a "blow-job" ?

A layer of dust will act as a layer of insulation, causing the printer to overheat, instead of "radiating" the heat.

Toner light & jam light on


Take out Formatter (main board) bake for 8 minutes at 350F,. let cool and put back in.
Put the card face up in a cookie tray and use screws to make sure it doesn't touch the tray.
Works fine

88 jaguar xj6 turns off, and sometimes on again all by itself


Given the ease of re-start I would check the ignition switch unscrew the shroud behind the wheel to expose the switch and with a volt meter find the perminant live and the switched ignition, sta rt and joggle the wires and see if you can get it to fail.

Hp laserjet 4 plus printer, message window "Ready", off line button shows red


You can try to do a "Cold reset"

turn off the printer hold down  the Menu/reset button and turn it back on.

Do you hear the machine go into rotation? the 4 plus has a high pitch sound follwed by the fuser turning ( you'll know when it does it) if it doesn't go into rotation then there is another problem.
